A recommendation of hardware should be driven by an individual's skill, usage patterns, and functional needs.
While Apple's backlit keyboard is really nice for low light situations, it does no good if keys are missing from Apple's 'simplified' keyboard. I end up lugging a real keyboard that barely fits in a large bag and a two button scroll mouse so I can fly around applications and be productive. True, Apple does have keyboard shortcuts that are convenient if you have three hands and fourteen fingers. And the two fingers on the touch pad to simulate a 'right click' is recognized by the BIOS after 3 or 4 tries. So it is possible to get work done on a MacBook.
If a warrior only needs to surf and write a simple memo on the road, then the MacBook is a contender. But for the tech workers and content creators that need to blaze through work on the road, other platforms may offer more productive choices.
